Ship Fever: Stories
3 journalers for this copy...
It's always so compelling to read of other readers and their interests. I never knew the bookcrosser miketroll or Mike Wiggett but I was touched by his passing from the community. Reviewing his bookshelf is rewarding. I recommend it. He had wonderful interests. I wanted to share an author I particularly admire, Andrea Barrett, in honor of him because Barrett offers much that interested miketroll. This book combines historical fiction about the Irish and modern science, two subjects that really come across from his bookshelf. As I am preparing a book box for one of his good bookcrossing friends, bookczuk, I thought I should include my current copy of this book. It's one of those I keep on the shelf to give away. My recently deceased mother, an enthusiastic science nerd for all of her life, liked these stories too. I've given this collection once before in bookcrossing:
I also recommend Barrett's book Servants of the Map. It's the first book of hers I read. I loved it and became a fan. It also was enthusiastically received in bookcrossing:

How wonderful to receive this book in a parcel from cordelia-ann! Your journal entry is so thoughtful. I am going to share the link with miketroll's family and friends, so they can see how his legacy continues. And the bookplate is lovely (she said with a grin, as it's one my good friend spedbug and I designed to remember our dear friend Mike.)

Im not a big short story fan, but I kind of liked this because the writing was interesting-- always a good thing in a book.
